    I've loaded over 1,000 rounds using the Barnes 150g TSX with 42.5g IMR 4064 with NATO brass. I've also purchased the above factor ammo. I've never used the chrono on them but I get 3 shots touching at 120 yards. It worked well for me on a number of hogs. Barnes is my bullet of choice.

    I'v got about 600 rounds left of my first batch, but a 5 month old and a 2 year old are eating into my hunting time here recently.

    Thanks! I'm looking also at the 130 gr. I don't reload so factory ammo is the only way I go. Everything I hear about the Barnes seems to be very good.

    I've used the 130gr and 130gr factory loads with good results.

    I've got the 130g in a Ruger 7.62. Haven't shot any hogs with them yet very impressed with the accuracy at 120 yards.

    I lean more towards the 130 grain for the hydrostatic shock.

    Ive used 168 TTSX and TSX with great success out of both my 308's... but by far the best hog load ive come across is out of my 338 federal... 185 TTSX... its insane how hard they drop

    Switched to the 130 in .308. Works great!

    Not a bad body count with the 130 gr.
